On Monday I had a scarf order to despatch and as it was a gorgeously, bright and sunny winter morning I decided to take a detour and walk through the cemetery to the Post Office.
This is my first visit to the cemetery since just before Christmas and what a pleasant surprise.
A tapestry of snowdrops and crocuses in various stages of blooming flowed in between the old headstones and graves.
Of course, the bright, but low winter sun enhanced the scene although the recent storms and high winds has left a muddle of fallen twigs amongst the blooms.
As I walked through this enchanting green space not only was it a feast for my eyes, but there was also a full chorus of birdsong including the sporadic rat-a-tat-tat drilling of a woodpecker.

Oh lovely. I too spotted the first crocuses, and heard the first woodpecker the other day. Can Spring be far behind?
Fingers crossed on that one – remember last year we still had the Beast from the East on its way.
What a very pleasant walk you had, bird song included.
It’s surprising how peaceful noisy birds can be.
A scene like this would not occur until April in my area. It’s beautiful to see it.
Well, here we have just had some unseasonably high temperatures again – all a bit worrying although the sunshine is most welcome.
Our weather is up and down, 5 F one day and 55 F two days later, but no blossoms yet. I hope in March to begin to see them. Your pictures cheered me up.
Thank you. I hoped to share the momentary glimpse of spring and pleasure I felt.
You’ve captured some lovely scenes here and described them perfectly…brought some welcome peace to a hectic morning. Thanks.
Ah thank you. It was genuinely a quiet pleasure and so unexpected in February. Hope you are well.
